Thanks for the reply. Two clarifications; first, I have cleaned and lubed the idle control valve. When I run power to it, it snaps shut completely and rebounds immediately to a position where there is an approximate 3/16" slit still open. Thus if it is supposed to be completely closed, it will need replacement. Since they are not cheap, I don't want to replace it unless I have to. Are you sure that it should be completely closed once power is run to it?
Second, I am aware of that thread but I appreciate your time to dig it out for me anyway. Just to make sure my question is clear, I need to know how folks access that adjustment screw on the 124 body with M103 engine not how to adjust it once I have gained access to it. Any one ever adjust the steering gear box on this car with this engine? How did you manage it?
